From the President’s pen…

Oh, what an evening! The Kitty Kats just kept it coming to our 135 attendees on the 24th!
New gowns, some new songs, some old songs, acapella and the 5-piece band were all thrilling and entertaining.
The 5-piece backing band were sensational & the production, as usual, was very polished.
Highlights for me – when Michelle was married recently, Suzanne & Renae sang “If I Had Words…” at the wedding,
and sang this for us as we watched the video on the back screen; a selection of Elvis-tunes with base,
Michelle singing his part (and it’s all about the base you know Sopranos’!)
Massimo Sportelli (drummer) playing his spoons on his thigh whilst the gals sang “Heart of Glass”;
Suzanne stepping up a vocal-notch with Edith Piaf’s “Non-Regrets,” in Tres bonne French! WOW!!
Renae then did her step-up with a Coltrane-like “Favourite Things” WOW again.
The huge audience, Members & non-members responded well with great appreciation,
ate most of the sweet goodies on offer on the tables, and lulled with a sugar-high bought enough raffle tickets to assist
us in paying for the band’s accommodation!!!

Hope you all enjoy a safe & loving Christmas Season & return to the jazz club refreshed & ready to go again!
Remember we start the year early – Friday January 19th (because of Australia Day holiday on the 26th.
We’ll send out the reminder and new programme in January.

A BIG THANKS to our small committee for the setups & pulldowns & decorations across the year!

and a souvenir or two from the editor's camera...

NB: A personal word of gratitude for Susanne's goose bump generating rendition of
Edith Piaf's "Je ne regrette rien" - (Ma chanson préférée - John)
...and she (sort of) promised me she'll do La Môme Piaf’s first ever hit, "La Vie en Rose" (1947)
as well next time! Definitely "une chanteuse superbe"!


Susanne

Michelle

Renae

and the support guys, without whom it wouldn't happen!
